Well Worth the Price

Written for Friday Fast Fiction. 100 word photo prompt. Photo by Sarah Anne Hall. –

“If you take that scarf off your head and listen, I’ll explain what exactly happened.

“I don’t wish to know.” Shrieked Emily, pressing the fabric against her ears. “You promised not to sell the ceramics.”

“I know darling, but I got a good price.”

“But you promised.”

“I know, but…”

“You swine. You promised…I hate you.”

“I did it for us.”

“You did it for yourself.” Emily accused. “That settles it. I want that divorce.”

“But darling, I made enough for our holiday.”

“Oh.” Huffed Emily, releasing the scarf and smoothing the creases. “Did we make enough for Mallorca?”

    Well in the end, she’s a practical woman. Seems the husband knows his wife well. Loved the way you built this up and switched in the end. Well played.

    Some people are just fond of using the D word and some others keep it handy as a dependable weapon, I guess.
    Great story, Bryan.
